The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea will be holding a free film evening with Unchosen on Tuesday, 28 March in the Small Hall at Kensington Town Hall (W8 7NX) from 6-8pm to mark the UN’s International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

Millions of people around the world and thousands in the UK are sold into exploitation and slavery every year – but it is a crime that takes place in the shadows. The evening of film hopes to shed a little light on modern slavery.

Unchosen is an anti-trafficking charity that organises film campaigns to raise public awareness and combat all forms of human trafficking, forced labour, sexual exploitation and domestic servitude in the UK and Ireland. They believe that film is a powerful tool that explains modern slavery in ways words cannot.

Unchosen’s films show the real life cost of modern slavery in the UK, and some are rated 15 – please bear this in mind when booking.

Doors open at 6pm to give attendees the opportunity to visit one of the stalls by organisations working to combat modern day slavery. The event will begin at 6.30pm and there will be a post film talk and Q&A with a panel of local experts.
